U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Governor Edwards has two more days to sign Constitutional Carry Legislation, Senate Bill 118 into law.  Don’t let him prevent law-abiding Louisiana citizens from enjoying the same rights that 21 other states now recognize.

Please contact your State Representative and ask them to urge Governor Edwards to SIGN Senate Bill 118 into law.  Also, please call Governor Edward’s office at 225-342-7015 and voice your support for Senate Bill 118.

CLICK HERE TAKE ACTION!

Senate Bill 118 removes the requirement for law-abiding individuals to obtain a concealed handgun permit before being allowed to carry concealed, a handgun for self-defense.  This important legislation ensures that citizens are able to exercise their right to self-defense without government red tape or delays.  This measure does not affect previously issued carry permits and allows citizens who still wish to obtain a permit in order to carry in other states recognizing Louisiana permits, to do so.

Following Texas’ enactment of Constitutional Carry, Louisiana residents will be able to carry without a permit in all three border states.  What is Governor Edwards’ objection?

Again, please contact your State Representative and ask them to urge Governor Edwards to sign the measure into law.  Please also call Governor Edwards’ office at 225-342-7015 and voice your support for Senate Bill 118.

Truthfully, I thought it was a standard operating procedure,
that a measure is approved, vetoed or passes into law
without a signature. The time to pigeonhole a bill is in
either house. In a representative republic, he can show
his contempt by veto, or sans signature. Apparently,
I am in error.

Some States may be different but when the President or a Governor does not veto or sign a bill, it is known as a “pocket veto.”

Take him out and string him up. If his replacement also refuses, do the same. Rinse and repeat.

Stop the spin. In states like Texas riddled with “gun free” zones it’s Constitutional Carry In Name Only; many don’t carry even where they legally can due to hassle of avoiding a mistake & risk of making one. It’s no kind of carry where you can’t carry. We can thank LaPierre’s NRA for that.

And I thought everything was bigger in Texas. Like freedom. Here in Kentucky we have gun free zones too. Personally I ignore them and carry anyway.

If he just lets it go into effect the same out come is archived.

If he veto it then they can try and over ride.

They said there were enough Legislature votes to override a veto. If so, DO IT! Then veto Edwards in his next run for office, whatever office it may be.
